Long ago when I was a boy I bought my first comic book, and seeing Conan on the cover killing his enemy started the thoughts of my best friend and I starting our own comic book. First we had to make up characters. Check. Then developed our dark super hero group. Check. Next we made new character after new character until our number grew to around three hundred, which is pretty impressive (in our minds) for 4th graders.
Now the hard part started. Well, the hard part for me. I found out pretty early that although I was a decent artist, my best friend was and still is an excellent artist. So of course putting my work up against his was a little discouraging. He never compared his art to mine, but in the back of my head I thought the art aspect of our new adventured was to be left to him. I went the writing route. I put out scripted comic books and had my friend draw the scenes. I found I actually enjoyed this more than drawing.
As the years passed, and the thought of doing just comic books faded, I decided to take my characters and put them in novel form. I had this great idea and started taking notes and making outlines. I finally started my first novel The Darkstone Chronicles: The Power Within. It felt great to finally accomplished something on that scale. I took out story lines from the past and began to put down story lines for other novels. I put out book II of The Darkstone Chronicles line. I have all these stories lined up and I’m trying my hardest to get them out in the world.
Writing to me is showing the world that I live in, the universe I created in my head. At the end of the day, I just love writing whether people read it or not. It’s who I am, and who I will always be.

I have started on the cover for Genesis (again). It’s all coming together. Just need my cover person. I will start doing interior pages this week. Have to do research for some articles that will go in the mag and get some photos together.
I am looking for someone to do book reviews for me also. I gave a few people in mind but am open to others. I will keep the updates flowing with this project and I have a couple of more side projects I am eager to get rolling.
On top of all that, I am working on my third book so bare with me if there’s a couple days between post. Any questions, feel free to contact me.
